some cracks beneath the surface. >> hello, everyone, i'm eric, along with bob, dana, kimberly and greg. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." on saturday afternoon, 28-year-old ismaail brinsley shouted to bystanders look what i'm about to go do. i in an instagram group-- >> i personally feel that mayor de blasio, sharpton and others
like them, they actually have blood on their hands. they encouraged this behavior, they encouraged protests, these so-called peaceful protests that where people were standing out there, saying kill the cops, well, i hope they're happy, because they got what they wanted. >> there's blood on many hands tonight. those that incited violence on the street, that tried to tear down what new york city police officers did every day. that's blood on the hands, on the steps of city hall, in the office of the mayor. >> a lot of blaming going on, is it fair to blame the mayor? >> i think it's absolutely fair, it's his words, his rhetoric and he needs to be held responsible and accountability. i would be delighted if he stepped down from his position. i haven't liked his politics or
his behavior. of course isn't all directly attributable to him, it is not, but he should be careful about the words that he uses and the impact that they have. they need to know that their mayor supports them, not to say that he raised his son to know to be afraid of the police officers. every day millions of americans across this country dial 911 hoping and praying that the police officer gets there in time, police department, firefighters, paramedics, they put their life on the line. one of -- look what happened to them, i mean such a tragedy. very upsetting on a lot of levels. and i have had it with sharpton too. >> at one point, de blasio said he had to take his son of color aside and said, be careful how
you handle new york city police officers because you don't want to be, i don't know, treated differently because he alluded to the fact that he might have been treated differently because of his color. a lot of people call that a dog whistle. any of this in reaction to any of the mayor's dog whistles? >> i don't like the idea of saying that the mayor has blood on his hands. the blame is on the killer himself. we don't want to become like the people that blame the entire police force for one incident. we don't want to be like that. we're better than that. however, when you look at the protests that have been going on in the last couple of months and you have seen the demoralization of the police officers and how they're basically, kind of nobody has their back. there's an implied consent over the protests, there's an idea that this is what happened after we elected de blasio, de blasio ran on the idea that the cops were going to get theirs, not like this, but they were going
to get -- they were going to lose their power and this was to appease his supporters who are hard left, anti-police, campus trained activists who do not like law enforcement. i don't believe for a second that de blasio wanted this, i just think he's incompetent. i think he has -- he doesn't have blood on his hands, he has oatmeal for a spine. >> well, okay. deblaz o de blasio to sharpton, he called for more protests, last week the protests called for dead cops. what happens a couple of days after they call for dead cops? we have two more dead cops. am i ---is it unfair for me to make the leap that al sharpton calls for more protests, protests turn out to be violent, violent protests kill cops. >> we do know that he was
somewhat deranged, he had been institutionalized before. and he was a murder. was this the straw that broke the camel's back that encouraged him to do things that he was thinking about doing already? i don't think we know enough about that. i would be careful on that. i do find it amazing that we every day are talking about al sharpton, as if he runs race relations in america. it was actually really incredible. his statement right after the cops were killed, statement was so self-serving, you got it there? >> let's take a listen to it right there. >> last night, i began receiving threatening phone calls and hate i play one, because i'm turning this over to the fbi, the language is hey, n-word, stop killi killing innocent people, i'm going to get you. and we have several like this. we are now under intense threat from those who are misguided u
by those that are trying to blame everyone from civil rights leaders to the mayor, rather than deal with an ugly spirit that all of us need to fight. >> who? >> who? >> this is literally hours after two dead cops were laying in their squad cars and everyone's waiting for al sharpton to make a statement. and here's what he comes up with, it's all about me. >> the statement's also written immediately, this is an immediate after math that said, i have never suggesteded that all cops are bad, i have just said that most of them are not bad. that's the kind of message that he put out there immediately afterward.'s terrible, he's proy going to call the cops. al, you want some help with the threats that are coming your way? call the cops. >> you wanted to send sharpton and de blasio -- >> i want to -- disgusting comment they have blood on their hands. bernie carrick is a convicted
fel felon. he should be back in jail. these are the guys that are saying it. kelly, he has no reason to say it. and the worst one, the guy that i admire the most, rudy giuliani said essentially is tame thing. >> no, he didn't, giuliani said it's wrong to say that there's blood on the hands of the mayor. but the fact of the matter is there's no blood on anybody's hands here, the blood, if there is any blood, you want to say that is, that they did a bad arrest and the guy got killed. that's what led to the protests. >> so you're linking that to the death of the two p cops? >> if it hadn't been for those guys -- let me finish that out. >> eye for an eye? >> if they hadn't had those guys killed, we probably wouldn't
have had riots. >> he just linked them all up. >> yes, he did. >> don't you these if there weren't riots we would have had this? >> i think that al sharpton asking for protests, to the cops, to this crazy man killing two cops. >> this isolated event, among millions of excellent police work has contributed to this? >> not at all. not at all. that's what i said he did. what i said was that i thought this situation, had we had not had these demonstrations, had we not had regrettably this guying the being killed. we would not have had the protests and we would not -- de blasio has nothing to do with blood on his hands. i mean come on. u you're the one who said he did. >> no, bob.
>> you did, you asked the question, what was the leap? you said did -- >> i don't have a problem with attributing his rhetoric to certain conduct. look at the police officers turning their back on him. >> do you blame the nra for -- >> is there any question that this guy was motivated to come down from baltimore to kill -- >> the guy was a crazy nut. he had been arrested 21 times. >> can you at least agree on that, right? >> he would have done anything, he said it. >> and that actually is your better point, bob, if you're going to -- to stick with that and not then say, but if we hadn't had the eric garner case, this wouldn't have happened. i do think the permissive nature of indulging the paranoia of the protesters on the far left. and maybe it was isolated. i think we were the first to show it on fox news, what do we want? dead cops, when do we want them? now, because the response to
that was so muted, it gave rise to the fact that the cops had reasons to be worried. >> and who was leading that protest? al sharpton. >> he called for those protesters. >> there was one guy who was a mentally ill, 21 times arrested, was wanted on murder, killed his own wife. >> he didn't kill her, it was a girlfriend he shot, she didn't die. >> it doesn't matter -- >> it does matter, bob. >> when you say that the guy comes up here to kill new york city cops is despicable but to lay it on the mayor. >> it was part of a very hostile and dangerous environment towards law enforcement to the point where the men and women that serve don't feel that we have their backs, because what do they hear when they're on the street? we want dead cops now. what did the mayor do about it. >> if this had not happened, if de blasio and the rest of them
hadn't talked about -- >> what we're trying to say, an vifr environment was created. >> correct. >> that encouraged people that were on the edge or the fringe, incouraged it. when someone announces that they're going to kill cops, why can't we take them at their words? when somebody yells, ala akbar, i know what that means. >> on social media, he announced it on facebook that he was going to do it and instagram that he was going to do it as well. where the people who -- >> that raises another point. >> the administration here that was against stop and frisk. don't go off and talk to anybody unless they're selling cigarettes. >> they had an idea in baltimore that this guy was going to do this. they did not have the technology to get it out to all the police cars.
>> let me talk about the facts, you want to blame somebody else, you want to blame the baltimore police? >> they need to have the best equipment they can get so they will know ahead of time. >> leading up to the murders of these two officers, here are congressman peter king and former mayor rudy giuliani setting the record straight. >> it's really time for our national leaders, the president, and from the mayor in new york, and from many in the media to stop this anti-police rhetoric. >> we have had four months of propaganda starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police. even those who don't lead to violence, they all lead to the same conclusion, the police are bad, the police are racist. that's completely wrong. >> that is the point, it's a very hostile environment, this isn't pass ty for any
communities, especially minority communities that have high crime, they need the police there and the majority of them are very grateful to have them there to serve to keep them safe. this is an administration and in fact an administration in d.c. and an administration here in new york city that said the cops are racist. that they profile, all of these things that are eroanous, that they are not facts to back it and support it. look at the environment we have right now, we have never had such a bad situation. remember after 9/11, everybody loved the nypd and the first responders. look at how far we have fallen. it's sad. >> you be careful what you say about a president. you say that, and you leave there, your introduction, you said we have had months of racism from the president of the united states. that is just flat wrong. he has tried his best, i think to try to cool things down. >> he claims that things are better now than when he took
over. >> you claim that somehow he's responsible. >> i didn't point at the president, the way al sharpton did, the way bill de blasio did it. when you open the door to more protest, sometimes you open the door to more violence. >> i also think that a lot of the media has been based on false accounts from the missouri case in ferguson, the hands up, don't shoot, that became a symbol, we have football players doing it. media stars and other networks joining in. perpetuating that myth. stoking the fire. the other thing is that what people are really mad about eric garner in new york city, really what they were mad about is that the grand jury did not return an indictment on any -- no charges. as far as i know those police officers are not sitting there with the grand jury and we don't have the information, we may never because those are secret
proceedings. the cop killer told bistanders, watch what i'm going to do. in this day and age, murder is now performance art. where did that come from? i'm not going to blame president obama, i'm going to blame the media, the ap has been hounding cops forever. they have been making their lives hell. the media has no idea what a cop's life is like. every damned hack should get into a car and do a ride along with them in the worst neighborhoods and see what police officers are doing and what they have to put up with. the police officers, they don't make any money, they live in those neighborhoods, these guys break their back for this country and they're treated -- >> and i have done those ride alongs. >> who is arguing? a very small fringe of the right. >> i will tell you how it's being portrayed. silence, when all this crap was
going down, there were no major leaders, those people that are in charge now, because they're associated with people like sharpton and they have a hard left backing, they cannot come out procop. they come out procop and then all of these activists get pissed off. >> maybe the people are just angry, let it go. but actually, i think that -- i wouldn't say blood on the hands. >> my point is -- right now, bob o you and the mayor are appealing for thoughtfulness and calm. >> a little late. >> we were doing that months ago, we were saying come on, we got to lighten up here. but they were demanding. >> and it was a different tune. >> the mayor putting a -- and they complained about -- they complained about no minority officers, well you just murdered two of them. >> they're talking about ferguson, where there weren't any minority officers. get that in line.
. so is the coupscum bag stat his murders were for revenge. it's called a declaration of intent and so i wonder will any ivy league classes delay their exams like they did after the grand jury decision. the only trauma they honor is the pretend kind for sensitive coeds. so the mayover aske-- mayor ask
should sensitive people come forward against this? >> what do we want? >> dead cops. >> when do we want them? >> now. >> the santa came early for cop haters. of course we will be told that there's no connection between chanting dead cops and cop killing, sorry, a bat could see that connection. seriously, what do you expect after months of demonizing the police. murders are not a power structure, but chanting death to cops suggests there's a fan base. the unbridled protest -- left wing version of a half marathon, god bless the cops for not cracking because i would. saturday night i took a walk to city hall, i realized that it was dead quiet. it would be nice to see a large city with unbelievably low crime, support those who have made their lives safer. but police are victims of their own success. one of these activists realize
that cops have done more to save their minority lives than sharpton ever could. after all those cops were protecting citizens in a high crime area, sharpton was not on that corner. it was surprising how quiet new york was on the streets. maybe it's time to change that. after the shootings, there was some interesting video that came out of ferguson, why don't we roll that. >> pigs in a blanket. >> so that's of course just an aberration, right, bob. >> there was nine people there, the r. the left overwhelmingly feels terrible about what happened here. you pick out a couple of people like sharpton and these idiots that you put on the air, you put us all together to one left being against cops, it's
outrageous, it's wrong, but if you have a history of anti-cop hate, we have joanne in cuba, she killed the cop, how did she get to cuba, goldwater? >> a vast number of new york city cops were corrupt in the '70s. >> okay, i apologize. >> you just said we just picked out president obama. no, but here's the point, the reason why we're highlighting al sharpton and calling for more protests, dead cops, what do we want more, dead cops and then dead cops appear the following week. is it because he's a race baiter or huckster like lou whii or huckster like lou whie jacks or thfarrakhan. even sony has to worry about
what kind of movies they put out now. ground zero, epicenter of problems of race in america, and everybody seems to divert to him for how to solve race problems, here's his idea, make it worst so that we can make a buck. >> and he says he's helping with hiring, so he can help make a decision for the justice department. >> i want to talk about ray kelley talking about the events and then i would like you to comment on it. >> okay. >> reason bli. >> obviously there's a lot of emotion involved when two police officers are killed. and the mayor made a statement that he had to train his son who is biracial to be careful when he's dealing with the police, i think that set off this latest firestorm and quite frankly the mayor ran an anti-police campaign last year when he ran for mayor. >> so really, it's not about that the mayor caused this, it's that the atmosphere around it
which causes a firestorm. >> i'm interested in de blasio, he might be the worst politician i have ever seen. he has an ideology, he believes it and he lives it. but it's one thing to tell your son that in private, and it's another thing to use it as a headline to explain how you empathetic you are for everyone who is unfairly targeted by police. >> stories of race have become stories of race. about a certain first lady who had somebody ask her to pull something out on michelle. that became a story about race a target, when i guess in fact it was previously about someone who didn't recognize her. >> i hate -- i wonder if the first lady was actually saying that, and i wanted to give sort of the benefit of the doubt on
that one. >> it could have been the "people" magazine editor. >> i thought the way it was edited was wrong. it will be interesting to see if he can take a punch and p get back up. and he had a long press conference today with police commissioner bratton, where they're trying to show that they were united, probably the most important audience that they have right now, it's not the citizens of new york, it's the police force. poor bill bratton. having to be in this situation, because he really does love the men and women that serve the nypd blue, that is for sure, and to be in a situation like this, a man who's been celebrated across the country, who went down for police departments, in los angeles, he's done a -- everything to make this town, this city safer and then to see such tragedy like this. and so the point is, we're not making a direct link saying this is de blasio's fault, but show some leadership, exercise only
caution, choose your words carefully, they have impact. >> good point, i was going to bring up johnny ray decided on his own to go to various police precincts and drop off flowers and cards. it's probably not a bad thing, other people should be doing and that doing what this family did i think it's inspirational. and i'm sure cops wouldn't mind seeing some happy faces. we see the visibilities of th despicable
lost in the anger following the brutal assassination, ramos was 40, on saturday his 13-year-old son jaden took to facebook to offer a truly heart breaking tribute. today i have to say bye to my father, he was there for me every day of my life. he was the best father i could ask for. it's horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. everyone says they hate cops, but they are the people that they call for help. i will always love you, and i will never forget you. rest in peace, dad. the cousin of officer ramos says
the family has already developed the strength to forgive. >> we forgive him, the ramos family forgives him, because god for gave us and i know if rafael was here, and if he was the opposite, he would say the same that he for gave him. >> really inspirational, the weier the family has handled a heart breaking tradgedy, you would think in the wake, they would -- eric, we see this compassion and this emotional strength and maturity coming from this family. >> i read that, that post that i believe is jaden ramos put up and p it was just heart wrenching. and if you read back a couple of posts earlier, it wasn't just that one post to his dad, he had consistently put up a post to his dad, how much he loved his dad, how much he respected his dad. >> it was a tight family, here's two kids now, jaden and his
brother who don't have a father that will come home to him. there are bill bratton said there are at least a dozen copy cat killing investigations going on right now, more kids who may not have a father coming? these law enforcement officers are here to keep us safe, they should been targeted, they shouldn't be spoken to the way they have been spoken to the last month. all i know is they are good people. they don't deserve this and neither do their families. >> for very little pay, never knowing whether they walk out in that uniform whether they're going to come back home or the next time their family might see them is at a funeral. >> the officers have to think about that themselves, but imagine what their wives or their husbands or their children or their moms and dads and all their family feels and their
neighbors. going into police work, it's not just that you fall into that career path, it's a choice, it's like people who decide to join the military, it's voluntary and it's because you feel some sort of calling. officer lu, his father came from guan ger guangdong province. why would you want to be a police officer, he's asking officer lu this, he said i know being a cop is dangerous but i must do it. if i don't do it and you don't do it, nen who is going to do it? we talk a lot about our military veterans, but it's important to remember that police work is a choice and they go into harm's way to protect us and that's very noble and honorable. >> they choose to serve and give every day, greg? >> really the only way to honor the fallen is to support those that are alive, support the
police, march for them, again, i just -- i do think police are victims of their success because nobody -- it was so quiet saturday after that and it blew my mind. and i went and i talked to the cops out there who were absolutely demoralized and i do think that president obama could do two things, he should have a national day of support for the police, or something, declare it. and they should demand the return -- >> cuba today so they have the right to keep her. >> the timing is very right for that. bob, some good news about the two sons of ramos, the yankee steinbrenner -- >> it was -- you know the thing that always surprises me about when police officers get killed,
no matter where they are across the country, thousands and thousands of police departments show up for their funerals. you see one after another after another. the deblaz o blasio walked into hospital that night and every policeman turned their back on him. if you can't pick up a message from that, you can't pick up a message. >> it doesn't get much stronger than that. should the act of hacking of sony be considered an act of war. president obama's answer to that question is next on "the five."
the movie the world is talking about won't be in theaters on christmas day, but the interview will be released eventually according to a lawyer for sony, the studio plans to the distribute but isn't sure when or how. the president doesn't think this was an act of war. >> i don't think it was an act of war, i these it was an ablgtd act of cyber vandalism, we take it very seriously, we will respond proportigtionally as i e
said. >> you can't say it's an act of war, we don't have clear can guidance on what an act of war in the cyber context. >> ceo michael lint ron thinks it's he and others who have gotten it wrong. >> the unfortunate part is in this instance, the president, the press and the public are mistaken as to what actually happened. we do not own movie theaters. we cannot determine whether or not a movie will be played in movie theaters. we have not caved, we have not given in, we have persevered and we have not backed down. >> i'm going to agree with president obama in calling this cyber vandalism. i don't think i would have come up with that word, but it was not quite anab act of terror, d you agree, greg.
>> because of what it's cost and that there's a fear for our lives in a lot of definitions constitutes terror. i'm against -- he just said it wasn't our fault that the movie wasn't aired, wasn't shown in theaters because they didn't release it, he forgot to mention they didn't give it to the theaters to release. the theaters make their own decision whether to release it or not. >> release it and put it on the theaters. the reason why they didn't release it because they were afraid if the movie theater didn't play the movie, the box air force office are receipts would be very low. they're trying to hide the fact that they pulled the movie themselves. north korea said our toughest counter action we have boldly taken against the white house, the pentagon and the whole u.s. main land, the cesspool of terrorism. really, north korea? >> kimberly, ilike taking it
down a notch because if president obama said yes, this was an act of war, then the next question is what are you going to do? they said proportional response, i think maybe it should be stronger than proportional. and north korea's internet has been out for the last couple of hours, which is only about 1,000 people, but perhaps a good move to me. >> i'm going to disagree with you right now. cyber vandalism, what? what does that mean? north korea got a magic marker and scribbled on the windows at sony? is that what they did? >> okay, that's a good point, but we can still go out later. i understand the president -- we can talk about it later. he can put some calm and measure to it. but nevertheless, you also can't be afraid to call it what it is. sony did not release it because they were afraid lives would be lost because of this. i like the rhetoric and the
stance, the executive from sony, and yes, he can't control the whole chain of the supply and demand, if the people won't, but find a way to do it, because this is a very dangerous precedent to shut it down and we can't cave in to terrorists. >> cyber war orvandalism. >> the biggest cyber warmongers are the chinese, they have stoling everything we have createded. the chinese haven't created anything since the great wall of china and they have -- i consider that cyber war which is why we ought to get out of there. >> if that's cyber war, what would you call what ed snowden did to america? >> cyber terror. but you know what? i can't believe they used the word sooicyber, i hate that wor. it could be applied to everything. i'm having cyber fiber.
it's fantastic. >> it will make you more regular. >> bigger question is how will hollywood make this movie about this incident 20 years from now, when they the protagonists are the actual cowards? how are they going to do this? are they going to hire oliver stone? because he knows how to rewrite history because they are the heroes. >> you know what the white house is going to be in this? the good hackers. >> hollywood has to stop portraying hackers as heroes. >> yeah, no kidding. >> okay, coming up, we know santa likes reindeer, but if he had to pick another animal to pull his sleigh, would he choose an elephant or a donkey?
kids, it's christmas morning, santa's coming to town. >> santa here? i know him. >> yeah, buddy. we're all getting excited about santa, because he's coming to town very, very soon. here's a question for you, is santa a democrat or a republican? "the washington post" just asked some folks in the political world for their thoughts. the chair of the republican national committee prints -- is a republican. how does he know that? he says imagine a democrat wearing that much red, that made no sense at all. and adds, if you like your gift, you can actually keep your gift. whatever that means. but democratic consultant jason ralston disagrees saying as someone greatly impacted and
deeply concerned about climate change and has negative views on cole, santa is clearly a democrat. i don't want to touch this topic, go ahead. >> santa claus is obviously a republican for one reason. run word, accountability. you're either naughty or nice. if you're naughty, you get good stuff. everyone get sas a everyone get sas -- everyone g astro s -- >> i have applied my mascot theory to this. i would say that any gift that had anything to do with an elephant is much better than one that has to do with a donkey, if you're a kid, you're much better to get a stuffed elephant than you would a donkey. >> he's not a republican or a democrat, clearly is a
libertarian, there are no labor regulations at his workshop and he loves hallucinogen eichalluc it's totally unbelievable. do you actually think he lives in the north pole? it's all in his head. >> no, it's not. you believe in santa claus don't you? >> i believe in santa, santa has been very, very good to me. >> i think i -- there's no question in my mind he's a democrat. he gives away things for pretty much free and that's what democrats do. >> but there's merit. you have to be either -- you're nice or naughty. not everybody's going to get it. >> one more thing is up next.
